    Now I see... this home has 3 Macs but no wife. Does that mean that the two are incompatible? That I have to get rid of a Mac to find a wife?

    This is from: Intel Xeon E5 Chip – What You Need to Know - Canadian Web Hosting Blog and News

    "Anytime Intel releases a new server chip, it usually is a time for celebration. What this means for server customers is more power for their servers and new technology integration that creates additional avenues for improved performance and design. Earlier this week, Intel officially launched their latest Xeon E5 CPU platform, which delivers an estimated 80-percent performance gain over the previous generation of Intel's server chips. With this platform, server customers have seen more than a 100x’s improvement in raw performance and processing power over the last 10 years."

    "The new E5 Xeons each processor now has a maximum of 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes, with each lane running at a top level of eight gigatransfers per second — roughly equivalent to 6.4Gbps. The amount of power consumed by the chips has grown slightly, with thermal design power (TDP) for the E5 family ranging from 60W to 150W. A new feature targeted at high-performance computing and supercomputing, named, Advanced Vector Extensions, which essentially doubles the floating-point performance of all the processors. This is significant especially for customers with compute intensive applications like medical imaging, heavy database read/writes and customers working with heavy visuals."

    No, but it does mean that you have the all clear to buy the new IQ260/280 and the Achromatic B&W version too.

    At least someone understands my logic.
